Formatting help
« on: September 30, 2014, 02:27:13 PM »
So I made this thing in excel that i wanted to post on here, but every time I try to copy and paste the columns don't match up.  So then I pasted it into word and lined everything up with the space bar. AND STILL it's way off on here.  Then I just went ahead and used the space bar to make everything look pretty in the message box here (the one I am currently typing in...) and things STILL won't line up.  There is no point in posting what I want to if no one can  read it.  Any ideas/unhelpful criticism of my intelligence??

Try using the Insert Code

Code: [Select]
Lunar 1:                          I love it
Lunar 2: Revenge of the moon      I love it even more

EDIT: yeah this doesn't work so well either... and it's black text on black.
The forum won't allow multiple spaces except in code though (afaik)

I think this is an issue of the fact that Word uses non-breaking spaces versus the fact that most websites us breaking spaces (where it will ignore multiple spaces).  I would recommend putting your document on a public Google Drive document and posting a link to that.

What about just posting a screenshot of the data? Do you need people to interact with the data?
